It’s official: Brenda Walsh is heading back to the old zip code.
The CW confirmed that Shannen Doherty has signed on the dotted line to reprise her role as the drama queen in the new 90210. She will guest star in several episodes, along with Jennie Garth as Kelly Taylor and Joe E Tata as Peach Pit owner Nate. Tori Spelling was also scheduled to appear, but backed out due to “personal reasons.”So what has Brenda been up to since leaving Beverly Hills to study acting in London (where Dylan later met up with her after his wife was murdered)? She became “successful theater actress, splitting her time between London and New York,” according to a CW press release. She then finds success as a theater director, and is asked back to West Beverly High to helm a high school theater production.Kelly Taylor, Brenda’s sometimes best friend, sometimes arch nemesis, will also be roaming the halls of the school as a guidance counselor. Will it be a happy reunion or a cat fight in the cafeteria? Tune in for the show’s debut on September 2 to find out!
